Dancing means many different things: movement, art, expression, and shape. With our programme, you can also involve the “learning by doing” method.
The American Dance Experience was created to combine dance and languages. Every morning will be divided into two main parts: English lessons and dance exercise therapy. The English lessons will focus on grammar, reading, and speaking. Your knowledge will then
be enhanced during the dance lessons, which will integrate your comprehension skills and make you actually practice your English. This way, we can provide excellent results and an important experience for your future, from a personal and professional standpoint.
In our 4-weeks programme, you will people from all over the world at the American Dance Language Center/Ballroom, in Dade, Broward & Palm Beach, Florida. Exchange of cultural diversity to develop your talking skills.
You will have a choice of a wide range of courses (ballet, jazz, hip-hop, Cuban, samba, Viennese waltz, tip tap, swing, musical, Argentine tango etc, to determine which one best fits your personality. Our plan is as simple as it is useful.
American Dance Experience is suitable for all ages, from 8 years old children and upwards.
Our goal is learning English … while dancing!

Francois Michel Jacques (Founder)
As a dance & EFL teacher way back home, ventured to the United States to pursue and further develop his career in dance. He was invited to join the Arthur Murray Board of Ballroom Dance educators in its rigorous teaching training program. With the
demands and challenges of the program, and as a certified social dance instructor, Francois achieved a greater understanding of the significance and impact dance would have on his life. He arduously studied and graduated with a Music and Video Business science
degree (MVB), Pursuing a Bachelor degree in Film-making from the prestigious Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and developed a teaching system that conveyed to his students an understanding that musical rhythms are cultural representations,
applied to body language emerging as communication of and for different ethnic communities.
His love for the art of dancing and the valuable knowledge he acquired led Francois, in 1987, to conduct specific research studies in the International Ballroom and Latin style dances, while he pored over volumes of written works on the origins of music and
dance at Nova University’s research library.
As a graduate in business ownership and management, his career brought him in contact with the owner of one of the largest ballroom/nightclubs in South Florida, Kay’s Starlite Ballroom, Inc. 1710 E. Hallandale beach blvd. in Hallandale Beach, Florida. Through
his efforts at this establishment, Francois was instrumental in bringing the Haitian and Latin community together in celebration and demonstration of their ethnic and true cultural unity. At this time, he began the development of a unique multicultural club
organization in South Florida, that would embrace and bring together people of all ethnic backgrounds and offer the opportunity to exchange cultural diversity through the art of ballroom dancing. Six years later, he successfully founded The New Millennium
Ballroom. Its primary objective was the inclusion of Ballroom dancing as a fundamental part of education in the school system, beginning at the elementary level.
